LLDC East Works Careers

East Works Careers (EWC) funded by London Legacy Development Corporation is a two year programme to support those who are:

  • Aged 15-19

  • Living in Newham, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest

  • From under represented groups (BAME, gender in STEM related roles)

  • In need of additional support to prepare them for the next positive step in life; e.g. employment, university

Led by BTEG working in partnership with West Ham United Foundation and Elevation Networks the programme will work with 250 young people and 100 BAME graduates to provide careers support, advice and guidance.

Why is there a need for this project?

  • Employer feedback says that local young people would benefit from extra support to:

    • Increase their confidence to apply for jobs they currently feel are beyond their reach/capabilities

    • Increase their knowledge about where and how to apply for jobs – often to companies on their doorstep (Canary Wharf, QEOP)

EWC will provide tailored careers support to increase chances of local young people getting local, high quality jobs – particularly in Construction, tech and creative sectors

The project has three distinct parts. See here for a detailed view.

Our 2 day BAME graduate training programme, which will give recent graduates the tools and skills they need to get into quality jobs, will be taking place on 31st January and 1st February at Here East. To register to attend click here: http://bit.ly/EastWorks2L8TGDI
